It’s crazy how fast time goes by and how directions in life can change. I’ve known Jens for over 30 years. We met at a fashion show of Hugo Boss, he was a model and I was managing director of an event agency that organized the show. With his cool manner, he saved the atmosphere when an organizational gap threatened to kill the event. So Jens became my first intern in the agency.

Many years later the roles were completely reversed and I supported Jens as a freelancer in building up the brand experience agency Jack Morton Worldwide in Germany. To start up an event business in Germany is difficult enough. But to establish yourself in a listed US company is in a completely different league. As Managing Director of Jack Morton Worldwide, he is now a proven financial and business expert. I am very pleased that Jens will be able to support us with his expertise in all matters relating to business plans, start-up capital and investors. Of course there is no certainty in a start-up, but with Jens’ expertise we feel very well positioned on the international financial scene.
